UC men’s basketball beefed up its non-conference schedule on Thursday with the official announcement of a home-and-home series with Mississippi State beginning in the 2017-18 season.

UC will host MSU on December 12, 2017, at NKU’s BB&T Arena while Fifth Third Arena is under renovation. The Bearcats will travel to Starkville the following season for a game on December 15, 2018.

“Mississippi State is a great series for us,” UC head coach Mick Cronin said. “Coach Ben Howland is a friend and one of the best coaches in the country.  He has his team poised for a great run the next few years and we are excited to have them on our schedule.”

FOX19 NOW recently confirmed UC is also scheduling a home-and-home series with UCLA beginning in the 2017-18 season. That deal is not yet finalized.
